How do you drive business sales with Twitter? Well, who better to ask than Twitter themselves, who have put together this nice little video that gives some simple, easy-to-follow tips on how you can use the platform to increase revenue for your brand.
First, create content that generates interactions for your followers, then gradually introduce your product offers. Keep your tweets simple, so followers know exactly what you want them to do – try a limited discount offer, and make sure there’s a clear call to action (CTA).
Twitter actually recommends that you avoid using any hashtags and @mentions in offers so as not to distract your customers.
Another good sales-driving tactic is what Twitter defines as “flock to unlock” – tell your followers that you’ll release a discount or other kind of exclusive offer if a tweet receives a predetermined number of retweets. And once the offer is unlocked, keep the momentum going by retweeting positive mentions from followers.
